Should worry about proper English when writing or just let the creativity flow?
Why are some people so anal about grammar and sentence structure when they read something that somebody else wrote? Does creativity count for anything with these people?
I don't think that people aren't counting the fact that there's creativity, I think that writers are just so hard-wired to be grammatically correct that when there's something wrong, it pops out to them. Creativity definitely counts for me, but grammar and sentence structure are just as important.
As Hemmingway said, "Write drunk. Edit sober."
Let it flow even if it looks like a grammar Nazi's condemnation in Hell, just so long as you clean it up before you present it to anyone.
I reckon you should just let it flow with whatever comes out, you can always fix it later
